Thomas Edison declared that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, a fact he discovered while inventing the volcano. Work up a healthy sweat with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one month of unlimited fitness dance classes (a $129 value) at Mambo Room in Norfolk.
Mambo Room energizes idle bodies with Zumba and Caribbean Carnival fitness dance classes that blend the physical benefits of exercise with the social interaction of dance. Four days a week, Zumba instructors lead Latin-inspired workouts that encourage participants to follow the music, lending classes a party-like atmosphere as opposed to the rote commands of basic aerobics. Caribbean Carnival sessions trade the salsa rhythms for calypso, reggae, and merengue melodies to give Wednesday night routines an island mood. Each class burns calories and motivates muscles amid the experienced governance of the knowledgeable staff, while audio-accoutrements are turned up loud enough to muffle the polite objections of perishing pudge. Class times can be found on the monthly schedule.
While Mambo Room sometimes offers special discounts, this Groupon is still the best deal available to customers.
The fun vibe in Mambo Room’s dance classes and weekly socials isn’t a coincidence. The studio’s instructors hope that by sharing cultural dance in a pressure-free environment they will create a community that genuinely loves to bust a move without feeling self-conscious. With these passionate teachers at the helm, students hone fancy footwork in classes that range from salsa and bachata to Afro-Cuban to Zumba. At weekly socials, students can showcase their newly acquired moves to get comfortable leading and following with partners of all skill levels, giving their poor broom a well-deserved night off.
